Welcome To Hockey!


From finding a rink near you... to selecting the first set of skates, and stepping onto the ice... getting into the game of ice hockey is an exciting adventure. Here's everything you need to get your family started in hockey!


IT'S MORE THAN A GAME - Hockey develops life skills that build a foundation for a child's confidence, pride, focus and responsibility.

LIFE LONG FRIENDSHIPS - Starting with the bonds created in the locker room to the relationships formed on the ice, hockey creates friendships that last a lifetime.

SET UP FOR SUCCESS - Hockey's unique structure ensures that your child learns to love the game while promoting a healthy lifestyle, social wellness and mental well-being.

HOCKEY IS FUN - The encouraging environment hockey provides helps kids grow as both hockey players and people.
